Former heroine and currently a popular TV actress Pujitha alleged that her husband Vijay Gopal cheated her and deserted her son by marrying an IAS officer named Rekha Rani. Pujitha further alleged that Vijay also had affairs with several other women and demanded a legal action against him and ever alleged threat to her and her son's lives from Vijay.
On the other hand, Vijay Gopal, a film journalist by profession, clarified that he never married Pujitha legally and that they only lived in in the past. Vijay also said that Pujitha can approach court and deal her case legally.
Meanwhile, Rekha Rani too said that she married Vijay Gopal after following all the legal procedures and added that Pujitha should move the court if she has any complaints. Rekha Rani earlier worked as Nellore district's Joint Collector and is currently working as the Director of Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh.
Rekha was also instrumental in star cricketer Sachin Tendulkar adopting Puttamraju Kandrika village in the Nellore district. Rekha Rani was earlier married to the late IPS officer Paradesi Naidu who was killed in an encounter with naxals in 1987.
